The Photogenic StudioMax III is a lightweight, microprocessor-controlled 160ws monolight that is ideal for studio or location work. This constant-color monolight is well-suited to digital photography. The light features continuously-variable power adjustments over a full 6 f-stop range. StudioMax III accepts all the Photogenic Quick-Change and StudioMax III accessories.
The StudioMax III 160ws Monolight with Reflector is an excellent solution for any photographer needing controlled color temperature from a compact and economical monolight. It’s easy to use and won’t break your budget. The AKC160 employs “constant color” technology which prevents the color temperature from visibly shifting, regardless of flash power level. That’s a concern when shooting digital. You can be confident that the white balance at 160Ws is the white balance at 5Ws.
Adjusting the flash power over the 6 f-stop range is a simple matter of twisting a knob. The color-corrected flash tube is user replaceable. The 100-watt modeling lamp can be operated full on or off as needed. The AKC160 is compact. It weighs only 2.6 pounds, so it’s great for location work and as an accent or hair light when in the studio. A high-impact ABS housing protects the unit. There’s a dedicated line of very affordable accessories for the AKC160. For added flexibility, all Photogenic Quick-Change light shaping accessories will fit these lights, too. Constant color output in an economical and compact monolight: that’s the StudioMax AKC160.
